Fans can now breathe a sigh of relief as American rapper Cardi B will not be replaced by singer Janelle Monae at the Bonnaroo Festival. A Reddit user posted in the r/Bonnaroo thread, claiming that they spoke with a staff member this morning and it was true that Monae was replacing the 'Kodak Yellow' rapper, reported USA Today.

"I heard Janelle Monae sound checking this morning, and I asked a staff member about it and she confirmed Janelle was replacing Cardi," a Reddit user posted on the r/Bonnaroo thread, promoting Google searches and some tweets about Cardi B's scheduled show.

Festival spokesperson Ken Weinstein put all the speculations to rest, confirming that Cardi is still going to perform at the event. "Reddit is inaccurate," he said. The rumors of Cardi not performing at the event comes at the heels of the news of her plastic surgery. In May, the Grammy Award winner canceled multiple performances due to recovery from plastic surgery.

While the procedure affected her shows last month, her Bonnaroo appearance is still on schedule. On Wednesday, Cardi B tweeted that due to the recovery issues, she was done with plastic surgery.

"I been working out for the past 2 weeks cause (expletive) I ain't getting surgery again," she wrote in a tweet on Wednesday, adding, "But let me tell you I haven't got a headache ever since." The tweet came a week after she criticized people for saying that she canceled shows because they weren't sold out.

"All of the shows I canceled were sold out they even put it on the news on the El Paso news. I even show ya how swollen my feet got when I get off a plane so imagine how my stomach and my back get and the pain I feel due to surgery," she tweeted.
